Helping children understand puberty

29th April 2009

Staff at a GP surgery in Derbyshire have launched an initiative to help nine and ten-year-olds understand more about puberty.

The special hour-long sessions for the children and their parents, which run twice a year, were started at the surgery in Brimington near Chesterfield because of concern about an apparent increase in unwanted pregnancies among teenagers. There is no direct reference to sex at the sessions apart from mentioning that when an egg meets a male sperm, it can turn into a baby.
